Outlook Attachments

I have a user that wants his Outlook attachments to show at the top of the message (in or under the subject line) and are now shown as an icon at the bottom of the message screen.
The user has an HP d330 - NT2000 machine with MS Office Standard version 2000 - no service packs.
is there a way without upgrading or buying a new version of Office?

Re: Outlook Attachments

Hi Ken,
It depends on the format that is used in the E-Mail..

If u r sending an E-mail / replying / forwarding an e-mail u can select the format and have the attachment shown under the subject line instead of an icon.. This is how u do that..

1) This is to set for new e-mails by default..
In Outlook goto Tools->Options in the menu and goto Mail Format tab and there u will see Message Format .. Here choose "Plain Text" as the format. And then click ok to save it.

2) While Reply/Forward.. Open the E-mail.. Then choose Format->Plain Text. It will ask for an confirmation and once u accept the confirmation.. u will be able to see the attachments under the Subject line..

Check it out..

Re: Outlook Attachments

It is not the format that is the issue, rather where the icon for the attachment is placed. This person wants the icon for the attachment(s) to appear in or near the subject line rather than at the bottom of the screen under the message.
Most newer versions of Outlook have the icon for the attachment at the top or near the subject line. This is not the case for this user.
Sorry for not being more clear.

Re: Outlook Attachments

When you change the messages to plain text, the attachment icons can no longer be displayed within or at the bottom of the message. Instead, they are displayed on a sepparate line right below the Subject line.

Re: Outlook Attachments

Thanks for everyones help. It seems that the type\format of e mail determines how the program displays a message.
There doesn't seem to be any ways to change Outlooks outlook so to speak.
Thanks again.
